Danish metal fusion artists Volbeat rock the Encore Park stage with their undeniably unique blend of rock, punk, metal, and rockabilly with the added bonus of influential Mercyful Fate guitarist Hank Shermann on lead guitar.
Photography for the 3 song limit was incredibly challenging as the set was largely backlit with pure white cans coming straight at the pit. With the help of lens hoods and shooting angles from the side the light was more readily controlled than with the absence of flash shooting head on. Still stopping down shutters in excess of 1/1000 head on allowed a few straight on captures. Overall, exposures varied from around 1/400 F2.8 ISO1600 to 1/1000 F3.2 ISO400 nearly exclusively shot with a single Nikon D700 and the Nikon 24-70 2.8.
